Step 1: Manage access policy

Ask yourself

Are you bogged down with the complexity of managing access policy across your entire network?

Something to consider

By centralizing policy management, you gain contextual awareness of everything hitting your network. You can secure fast access consistently and efficiently while relieving the stress of complex access management.

Recommended solutions

Benefits: In addition to gaining full control of all devices accessing your network, ISE allows you to apply threat intelligence so that you can contain suspicious devices fast.

Did you know?

Traffic from wireless and mobile devices will account for more than 82 percent of total IP traffic by 2022.

Step 2: Automate segmentation

Ask yourself

Is there an easy way to reduce the risk of spreading malware by segmenting groups of employees, guests, partners, and IoT devices?

Something to consider

Due to time-consuming manual operations, many IT teams find it difficult to apply segmentation effectively. With automated policy-based segmentation, you can reduce both threats and administration overhead.

Recommended solutions

Benefits: Get full control over which users have access to which resources, anywhere in your enterprise. Integrating with your existing ISE deployment, Cisco Services can help accelerate your transition to SD-Access.

Did you know?

An estimated 80% of breaches originate from the internal network.

Step 3: Detect threats faster

Ask yourself

How can you gain full visibility into who is accessing which resources? And how can you detect threats or anomalies even if data is encrypted?

Something to consider

By applying advanced cognitive analytics to all data crossing your network, you can identify attacks that would otherwise go undetected.

Recommended solutions

Benefits: With intraflow telemetry captured on Catalyst 9000 switches and ISR 4000 and ASR 1000 routers, you can identify malware even in encrypted traffic, without compromising privacy. We can help you get started faster with full lifecycle services for Stealthwatch.

Did you know?

In 2019, 70% of attacks will use encryption.

Step 4: Provide highly secure access anywhere

Ask yourself

How can you ensure end-to-end security while meeting the diverse needs of users, devices and applications from point-of-access all the way to the data center?

Something to consider

By extending policy-based segmentation into the data center and industrial environments, you can achieve end-to-end protection all the way from users and devices to applications and services.

Recommended solutions

Benefits: Automating policies with intentbased networking across your campus, branch, extended enterprise, and multi-cloud environments helps you manage growing complexity and risk of mobile devices, applications, and services.

Did you know?

For enterprises, 50% believe that their mobile infrastructure is at a high risk for a security breach.
